Broccoli & Carrot Cheddar Soup

Standard

I used to be obsessed with the broccoli cheddar soup from Panera- until I found out a teen tiny cup of it was filed with 1500 mg of sodium! Gross.  So a year ago, I started making my own but used chicken broth and it was delicious.  This was my first time making it with veggie broth but it was just as yummy!

4 cups chopped broccoli

1 cup shredded carrot

3 cups vegetable broth

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups coconut milk

3/4 cup onion, chopped

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

4 tbsp butter

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and add onions when melted
  • Cook for 5 minutes occasionally stir, then add in flour and cook for 3 more minutes
  • Whisk in coconut milk, then add vegetable broth, salt and pepper and bring to a boil
  • Once boiling, reduce to low/medium heat and simmer for 20 minutes
  • After 20 minutes,  add broccoli and carrots to mix and simmer for another 20 minutes
  • Then, bring heat to medium, add cheese and cook for additional 5 minutes until fully blended
